The Laon are best described as being like a large mouthful of green jelly on a spoon that once put up to your face and into your mouth, swallowed and inside your belly, begins to bubble and boil and make you feel all warm and tingly, and you feel the sensation move throughout your body and when it hits your brain......POW!!!! you become lost in a world of lemon grass and ice cream mountains where the sky is eyes and and air is scented with lavender. You walk a while, enjoying this feeling and you wish it would go on forever .......
